iOS 8.4.1 rolled out for all Apple Devices, since it’s an x.x.1 version, understandably iOS 8.4.1 has one sole focus, and that is fixing bugs. The official changelog makes this extremely clear.
Apple rolled out the updtae with the idea of fixing issues related to its Apple Music service, but testing suggests that more fixes are needed.
According to the developers the rolled out update resolves the following issues:
- issue that hides added music because Apple Music was set to show offline music only.
- issues that could prevent turning on iCloud Music Library.
- issues for artists while posting to Connect.
- introduced an way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren’t any playlists to choose from.
- issue where tapping Love doesn’t work as expected while listening to Beats 1.
Also there is a bug fix for an issue that could prevent iCloud Music Library from working, another for one that used to hide added music if the service was set to show offline tracks only, and there’s now a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren’t any existing playlists to choose from (which sounds like something that should have been possible already).
However some issues are still not fixed like:
- on switching back music app after interacting with other apps it refreshes to the home page.
- some tracks previously uploaded to iTunes Match goes missing are unavailable and trying to play them generates a prompt to sign up to Apple Music.
To install iOS 8.4.1, access your devices Settings > General > Software Update and upgrade to the latest version, or connect your device to iTunes to get the latest software.
